Gasp! Two Posts In One Day!

It was such a gorgeous day here that I thought I'd post a few pics I took at cocktail hour, as DH and I settled in with a glass of wine on the verandah, to enjoy the kitties and the view. I know lots of you are dealing with severe weather and short days, and I wanted to remind you that summer WILL come's proof:
Of course, when summer comes again for YOU, WE'LL be shivering and hiding under the covers Down Under...

Alfonse, Cloudy and Patch decided to hang about and enjoy the late afternoon/early evening with us:

And isn't Patch a handsome fellow?

Of course, Alfonse believes that he is ruler of the roost:

While the donkeys hung out under the trees, looking for a cooler spot:

I meant to get pics of the other kitties, but Frank and Chloe decided it was cooler to lounge on their straw bales in the outdoor room of their kitty condos, while Cassie and Spike were in a deep sleep inside...being Ladies of a Certain Age, they need their beauty sleep!

Such pretty scenery. Breathtaking! you must love looking at it. Sounds like you had a nice Christmas - did it take some adjusting to have summer for Christmas?

Cocktail hour sounds very dignified!! Love the recently pieced quilt top, beautifully bright...I think that great stripy binding will be a success1 Tracey

Your quilt came out fantastic! So colorful and the words are great! I really enjoyed your "happy hour" since we are here with 5 inches of snow!! Thanks for the reminder that warmer days are coming.
